In the second session, Drs. Sholikin, the ELTIS Islamic Schools Adviser, invited the committee members to give their feedback and suggestions on the best way to socialize the ELTIS training programs among the Madrasah Principals. ELTIS will invite the School Principals whose teachers will attend training to a half-day workshop in Situbondo (26 November 2007), Bondowoso (27 November 2007) and Probolinggo (28 November 2007) in order to explain the language and teacher training courses their teachers will join and gain their support and commitment to release the teachers from their duties in order to attend the training. These workshops will also be conducted for School Principals in NTB in January 2008.

The meeting was a very good opportunity to bring ELTIS key partners at the provincial and district Religious Affairs offices together in order to discuss technical aspects of the ELTIS training, such as letters of commitment, certification, MGMP groups and sharing database information. There was a good sense of cooperation and commitment from everyone who attended.
